A Solid Maple Farmhouse Dining Set
I snagged this wonderful dining set at the flea market last weekend. It's vintage, made by Cushman c.1960 and is 100% rock maple. It's so so beautifully built, just the highest quality and craftsmanship you can imagine, and that made it such a joy to work on. I sanded stained, and sealed the spectacular top in a warm honey tone, and painted the six chairs and table base in a custom mixed bright apple green I've named 'Apple Tart'. I distressed all the painted surfaces and sealed that with dark wax. I'm biased because it's one of my favorite shades of green, but of all the dining sets I've refinished, this is one of my favorites!
